As with pretty much everything I read I found the ending to this a little unsatisfying a little too contrived in too short a space but the path to the ending was well worth it Nicola the narrator is a sharp funny observant kid even in her own confusion about her sexuality and Battle is both a fantastic foil and a fantastic love affair for Nicola The dynamics and the emotions in this one rang very true for me on all levelsIt pleased me to learn just recently that Sara Ryan has written a second novel about Battle while Empress of the World is Nicola s story it was ultimately Battle that I wanted to know about

Empress of the World

Ssued with an introduction by acclaimed author David Levithan and copious back matter including three graphic novel stories by Sara Ryan and artists Steve Leiber Dylan Meconis and Natalie Nourigat about the character. i really enjoyed nic as a character and have to say i could relate to her and her struggle with coming to terms with her bisexuality a lot however i had a few problems with this book which is why it took me a while to get throught it 1 i honestly didn t like battle might be because of the biased view we get of her but to me she seemed like the regular mysterious girl with tragic past The way she treats nic and how it is resolved in the end didn t make me root for them which is what i guess the book intended2 the over the top use of the d slur by mainly straight characters and the bi erasure I understand this book was written over a decade ago and that it tried to be realistic about its portrayal of bisexuality and the biphobia and homophobia teenage girls face but when it happens almost every page even by people nic considers her friends and they don t learn even after she corrects them if those were true friends they d love and respect her and i honestly don t understand why she or i as a reader should keep up with thisall in all i feel like this book for its time may have been progressive and i still think it s a nice read if you look at it critically but i also think to young bi people it sends a message of your sexuality isn t valid and your friends saying so shouldn t bother you which is dangerous in times where our community is often still ignored stereotyped and mislabeled

Sara Ryan ¿ 7 Summary

Battle a beautiful blond dancer The two become friends and then startlingly than friends What do you do when you think you're attracted to guys and then you meet a girl who steals your heart A trailblazing debut rei. 35 starsI think I might be getting a little old for YA I mean I m a young adult But I m not a Young Adult So that s probably why I didn t like this as much as I may have a couple years agoThe characters were rather bland and generic but still moderately likable Also pretty sure Battle Hall Davies was a precursor to John Green s mysterious female love interestsThe dialogue flowed well and it was at least interesting enough to make me read a majority of it in one sitting I kept expecting something big to happen but this was a very tame book Coming from someone who reads mostly sci fi and horror I did like that the characters were unapologetically bisexual and no one harassed them about it There were some homophobes in this of course But that was far from the focus of the story and they weren t specifically biphobic Also hooray for the view spoiler happy ending hide spoiler

    Empress of the world by Sara Ryan is a very moving meaningful story that deals with very touchy subjects Such as love friendship and finding yourself This book should have exposed due to the fact that now a days teenagers have to deal with these kind of things and in todays life style and society which is so open and free to whatever This country's youth should be educated of these things Empress of the world is about two young gi

    35 starsI think I might be getting a little old for YA I mean I'm a young adult But I'm not a Young Adult So that's probably why I didn't like this as much as I may have a couple years agoThe characters were rather bland and generic but still moderately likable Also pretty sure Battle Hall Davies was a precursor to John Green's mysterious female love interestsThe dialogue flowed well and it was at least interesting enough to make

    There’s a hole in popular young adult fiction specifically romance I’m so tired of the typical boy girl boy love story that is so pervasive in YA lit Where are the teen lgbt stories? Not the one where the hetero girl has the flamboyant all knowing gay male friend that helps her through her romantic crisis but the on

    It was an enjoyable read but it didn't have much of a plot There really wasn't a whole lot going on in this one It was interesting and was easy to sit and read almost cover to cover but at the end I felt like nothing was ever accomplishedThere were a few story threads I was invested in which were just never followed up on or resolved This was rather disappointing
